Lou Reed non è forse stato un grande musicista in senso tecnico, ma un artista con molto da dire e idee maledettamente buone per dirlo. https://salteditions.wordpress.com/2013/11/12/in-berlin-by-the-wall/
"sometimes i get depressed and i don't go out
and my joy division albums are all worn out'
feel like iggy want to wallow in sin
so i lock the door and i listen to Berlin..."
- gary heffern, from his song "lou reed:".
Reed is handing us a vessel of unforgettable music comprised of shards of broken glass; while we grasp the object to study it completely we begin to notice the razor-edges tearing us to pieces yet we don't put it down.
